Researching in Children's Literature

Childrens and YA books have a call number that starts out with "PZ". That  section is in the southeast corner of the 5th floor of Millar Library.

Use PSU Catalog to look up books in the Library's collection. You can search by author, illustrator or title.

You can also search by a keyword plus the word word juvenile.  Below are some books found by searching with the words friendship and juvenile.

Requesting Books from Summit

A Find & Request link under the title means that the book is not in our collection or is checked out, but is likely held at one of our partner libraries.

You can request the book by clicking on Find & Request and selecting Request from Summit.

It takes approximately five days to receive an item through Summit.

Requesting Books through ILL

If a book is not available in our collection or Summit, often we can still get it for you!

Just request it through Interlibrary Loan.

Please note: it can take up to 12 days to receive a book through interlibrary loan.
